In 1930, a young man stands on a deserted Scottish beach. Wystan H. Auden is longing to be a great poet; longing too, for someone who understands him. He scribbles down his telephone number, puts it in an empty milk bottle, and flings it into the sea.
Decades later, Dora Fielding stands on the same beach, lost and desperate. She years for connection, and when she finds the message in the bottle, she calls the number.
What happens next is a breathtaking leap of faith that rejoices in the power of the human imagination.
